Keeping an Eye on the Road Ahead
Today many in the world who see her successes, her flights to highly sought after resorts, being able to pick the movies she is part of, as a quick road to success. That would be an underestimate since Rebel Wilson’ road to success had plenty of cancelled shows and people who doubted her talent.

With Peers Comes Pressure
Rebel Wilson was born in Sydney on the Western Side of Australia. She had several siblings she grew up with: Liberty, Annachi, and Ryot. Both her parents were do-lovers, especially, they loved breading beagles.
Rebel Wilson worked hard against her shyness and helped her parents at the dog-shows she attended with them, sometimes showing the beagles. Rebel Wilson had to be coaxed into attending acting classes by her Mum, who otherwise would have preferred staying in the car.
Her First Acting Class
Her Mother seeing her daughters need to express the talent that lay deep inside of her, simply left her at acting classes and drove off for two hours, until class was over. Rebel Wilson says her family didn’t see her talent as being funny at all.
Her family sees themselves as funnier than Rebel Wilson, but it was Rebel who ultimately landed before producers and actors in Hollywood as a professional comedian. Though Rebel Wilson had the talent inside her self she realizes now how her Mother played an instrumental role in getting the spark of talent ignited at an early age.
